Brighten Up Your Space with a DIY Christmas Wreath
Top ‘o the morning to you, readers! I’m sure you’re busy preparing for Christmas, but I wanted to share with you another opportunity that I had to write an article about how to Brighten Up Your Space with a DIY Christmas Wreath!
A fellow blogger and I decided to tag team our articles and by that, I mean – we decided to exchange guest posts. You may remember her post from earlier this week: Last Minute Fashionable Holiday Gift Ideas. It was a hit – filled with awesome ideas for fashionable friends. So, since she posted that on my site, I posted about creating a beautiful DIY Christmas wreath on her site.

I’m sure you’re wondering where I came up with the idea, though, right? Well, even if you’re not, I’m going to tell you because I think it’s wonderful.
So, every time we visit my wife’s parents for Thanksgiving they have a craft for us to complete. The first time I went there, her mom had gotten a project together for us and so we all made light balls. We took a bunch of plastic cups, drilled a hole through the bottom, and strung lights through them. Then we stapled them together to make a disco-ball type Christmas decoration that looked gorgeous!
Well, this past Thanksgiving my wife’s father got together a project for us all to make: DIY Christmas wreaths. After our big Thanksgiving meal, we headed out to the garage where he had set up a table filled with pieces and equipment to build wreaths.
My wife, her parents, her brother, her sister-in-law, and I all set to work creating our wreaths. We had a blast! My wife and I talked about it on the way home, gave a wreath to my parents, and hung two up in our house.
After we hung them up, it was like a breath of fresh air. They were beautiful and they truly brightened up our space! And from that moment came the post: Brighten Up Your Space with a DIY Christmas Wreath.
